Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 10/1

For the final time this season the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox will go head-to-head as both teams look to close out their 2015 seasons. The Yankees have run into the buzz saw that is a red hot Red Sox team this week that has delayed their inevitable clinching of a postseason berth while Boston has presumably enjoyed playing the role of spoiler down the stretch. Tonight in the finale the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with a familiar foe in Rich Hill. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, ESPN2 and MLB TV.

  • Sabathia heads into this start tonight, possibly his final start of the season, looking to even up his career record against the Boston Red Sox. Sabathia has made 31 starts in his career against Boston and owns an 11-12 record against them.

  • Hill was a member of the New York Yankees in 2014 but he never dreamed of pitching as well for the Bombers as he has down the stretch for Boston. Hill has struck out 10 batters in all three of his September starts and heads into this start fresh off a complete-game shutout against the Baltimore Orioles.

The final game inside Yankee Stadium for the regular season and the final Red Sox vs. Yankees game of the year, you have to send the fans home happy tonight in the Bronx. 10,000 wins pales in comparison in my eyes to a postseason berth because probably 85-90% of those games were played and won before I was alive and watching. I’ve watched every single game this season, either at home or on my phone at work, and I want to be rewarded with a postseason. Now do it. Go Yankees!
